My first experience in a Safari Park -- Safari Park Beekse Bergen @ Tilburg, NL

I don't know who's more thrilled today -- me or my daughter?? ;p

but we spent a wonderful day @ the safari park, about 30 minutes drive from our place, having close encounters of the wild kind! the weather was also kind ... it was quite cool , not too sunny and even though it rained, it did only towards to the end of the day and was a slight drizzle that didn't affect our plans much :)

we could explore the park in 4 ways :
- by car
- by foot
- by bus and
- by boat.

when we reached, we decided to explore the park by car first. quite an experience being so close to antelopes, deers, zebras, cheetahs, giraffes etc. My favorite is the giraffe!!

they weren't afraid to come by the cars and started licking the car roofs, windows etc....so cute!!

taken from our car:


this photo was taken when we were taking the bus at the end of the day when it also started drizzle... which was why the giraffe was licking the bus roof and windows -- they were having a drink!)
when we took the bus tour, we had the chance to touch and feel a real antler -- kaira was thrilled, she wanted to put it on her head ;p they are so heavy!!
the cheetahs also got quite close to us when we were driving the elephants and baboons made kaira very happy too :

it was an enjoyable trip! am glad that we are able to make this trip before we return to sg! one more item on our "to do" list accomplished :)
